THE LOST FILM FEST HITS GLASGOW NEXT THURSDAY 6TH OF NOVEMBER AT THE HALT BAR!! 7PM! £3!

hey please come along to the halt bar on woodlands road next thursday to check out West Philadelphia's Lost Film Festival. The Lost Film Fest is a traveling showcase of truly independent (read: anti-corporate) film, presented by Scott Beibin, Festival Director/owner Bloodlink Records. The program features scathing and hilarious social commentary from North America and beyond in the form of narrative shorts, documented pranks, and hot amateur protest footage from around the world appropriately called "Riot Porn" by the festival organizers.
The unique program is an action packed three hours long, and never drags. Festival director Scott Beibin spins the films in the same way a house DJ spins records, and narrates with amusing anecdotes and behind the scenes information about the films. Lost Film Fest, sports a strong guerrilla aesthetic. Its' indigenous environs are squats, clubs, warehouses, & rooftops, but regularly appears at theaters and universities as it's gained enormous popularity throughout the years amongst young people. Many of the iconoclastic filmmakers featured in the program make use of Digital Video and Non-Linear editing, producing low to no-budget masterpieces. Their films intentionally fly under the radar of the mainstream.
